We have a meeting with a DJ in a week! I'm pretty nervous about this part actually. The music is really really really really important to me and Eric. We definitely want people enjoying themselves on the dance floor, and it is going to take a pretty good DJ to get people out of their seats! Wish us luck!

Getting Excited!

The countdown continues! Only 190 days until the big day! It seems like just yesterday it was still over a YEAR away! I didn't think time would go by this fast and I'm amazed! I know from here on out it will only go faster. I am definitely taking the chance to breathe in every moment! Now that our honeymoon is taken care of, it's time to start thinking about the small details. My mom did a mock up of what our wedding cake will look like the other day, and it was absolutely gorgeous! This is going to be the best summer garden party wedding ever! My mother is so unbelievably talented! I am still confused to this day how some of that didn't rub off on me...hmm...oh well. Sometimes I wonder if I'm letting her do too much for this wedding, but she seems to enjoy it more than anyone else would, so whatever floats her boat! It is also time to start thinking about the bridal shower and getting our registries set up. For anyone reading this who is interested, we are registered already at We already have a lot of the household stuff that we need, so we thought it might be a good idea to do a honeymoon registry too, to help make the trip extra special! :) Anyways...that's all for now!

Honeymoon Update!

We are saying "no thanks" to Sandals Resorts and are on a whole new track now! We will definitely be going to Mexico. Puerto Vallarta to be exact, which is actually PERFECT considering that's where our relationship first started :) There is a resort there called Dreams Resort & Spa and it's so much cheaper than a Sandals Resort and we wont be flying for 12 hours with a 5 hour layover! I'm very excited!!! We haven't booked it yet but we will sometime this week hopefully. Eric can't get much done at work anymore because they are so busy there *kind of*...and I don't want to plan our honeymoon lol. My job is the wedding, Erics job is the honeymoon! SO, hopefully it will be booked tomorrow! I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :)

Hello Everyone!

For anyone reading this who may not know...Approximately 3 and 1/2 years ago I met the love of my life and my best friend, Eric Rupert. I decided recently that it might be fun to start a blog so all of our friends and family who live both far and near (if you're interested) can keep in the loop on where we're at in the process of our engagement :) Eric and I got engaged on May 29th in Canon Beach, OR. In 197 days exactly, we will say "I Do" and we will begin our life as husband and wife. So far it has been pretty easy planning. The reason for that is because my wonderful mother has pretty much had my wedding planned since I was born :) We will be getting married at the Thornewood Castle in Lakewood, WA on July 24th, 2010. Our wedding colors are various shades of pink and green, which worked out nicely because my favorite color is pink and Eric's favorite color is green. We already have a photographer and caterer. The cake design is chosen and will be made by my amazingly talented mother. The linens are chosen along with all of the stemware, china, etc etc. The officiant will be one of my life heroes and mentors, Pastor Steve Olson. All of my bridesmaids are chosen, along with the dress, and we are currently in the process of finalizing Eric's groomsmen. The next step will be choosing a DJ for the event. If anyone has any recommendations please don't hesitate to suggest someone!

Yes...the wedding is coming along very smoothly!...We have only one dilemma that we are dealing with right now, and that is the honeymoon.....

We booked our reservations for a Sandals resort in Jamaica about a month ago. We found out 2 days ago that the particular resort we booked will be going out of business 5 days into our stay :/ So we have 2 options. We choose a different Sandals resort in Jamaica and hope that it stays in business, or we get our money back and go with a totally new plan. I'm hoping we can stick with Jamaica. I've really had my heart set on it. And Sandals resorts just seem so stress free and easy! So hopefully in the next week or so we will have our honeymoon plans set in stone again, and will be buying plane tickets!

That's pretty much it for now! I will keep everyone updated :) Loves!
